Packing can be hard. You don’t want to overpack and worry about your suitcase being overweight at the airport. But you also don’t want to underpack and end up forgetting something.

And then, there are day trips where you aren’t actually sure of what to pack, so you just throw everything in a bag and end up carrying around a really heavy bag filled with things you don’t need.

We’re here to help. We put together this list of all of our packing lists. Just scroll down, find the event or locations you’re packing for, and start checking off the items on our list.

If you find anything that we’re missing on our lists, or if you have ideas of packing lists we should create, definitely shoot us an email and we’ll get to updating and creating.

To make it easier, this post is split into three categories: Day Trip Packing Lists, Overnight Packing Lists, and then Packing Tips.

As we add more packing lists to Drugstore Divas, we’ll be updating this post. So, be sure to save it however you save posts (bookmark it, pin it, etc.) and come back to it next time you need to pack for a trip.

Day Trip Packing Lists

Packing for the day is a lot easier than packing for an overnight trip because you don’t have to pay things like pajamas.

But, you can’t pack the same things for every day trip. So these posts are tailored to specific day trips.
